CONDITIONED PRAYER

CONDITIONED PRAYER?

What are you talking about?

I hope you don’t mind me sharing a way that Jesus is stretching me in my prayer life.

I FIND THAT WHEN I PRAY, I PRAY ACCORDING TO THE CONDITIONS THAT I CAN TANGIBLY TOUCH OR COMPREHEND.

We have been conditioned to pray for our needs, wants and desires according to our surroundings and what we have experienced in the past.

THIS LIMITS OUR GOD FROM POURING OUT THE EXCESS.

I have heard people pray, I don’t pray this way but have heard them, “Lord, just give me enough to pay my bills because I don’t want to be greedy.”

WHAT THAT ACTUALLY SAYS IS, “I am greedy because I only want enough for me to survive.”

Sometimes when I pray for things that we need or as a church, or that I need personally, I constrain Jesus and His wealth by praying cheaply and with a survival mindset instead of realizing that our ACCESS ACTUALLY PROVIDES EXCESS.

When we really look at heaven we only see EXCESS!

Our EXPOSURE limits our EXCESS because of our seeing faith.  We see it in the spirit before we even harvest in the natural.  When we pray according to our limited exposure we harness heaven’s excess to our prayer of “just making it by.”

Heaven’s street are ______________ (Rev. 21:21).

Solomon’s yearly wage just in gold was  ____________ (1 Kings 10:14).

WE MUST STRETCH OUR SEEING FAITH TO PRAY IN THE EXCESS SO THAT GOD’S KINGDOM AND OUR HOMES LIVE AS TESTIMONIES OF GREATNESS, NOT SURVIVAL.

Josh 6:2,  But the Lord said to Joshua, “I have given you Jericho, its king, and all its strong warriors.

HOW WOULD YOU PRAY IF YOU TOOK THE CONSTRAINTS OF YOUR CONDITIONING OFF TODAY?

HOW BIG WOULD YOU PRAY?

WHAT WOULD YOU SOW KNOWING YOU WILL REAP THE GREATEST HARVEST TO DATE?

WHY IS EXCESS SEEN AS EVIL?  ONLY THE GREEDY, SELFISH SEE WEALTH AS EVIL!
